About SPT

Trust Mission

The mission of the Springfield Preservation Trust is to preserve and protect properties in Springfield, Massachusetts which have architectural, historic, educational, or general cultural significance for public edification and enjoyment.

Trust History

In 1972 a group of concerned Springfield residents created the Springfield Preservation Trust as a reaction to the destruction of historic buildings. the Springfield Preservation Trust purchased key properties to preserve, and encouraged others to do the same. In time the situation stabilized and the Springfield Preservation Trust was able to shift its focus to helping residents learn about preserving and maintaining their historic properties. In more recent years the Springfield Preservation Trust has been known for its annual tour of homes and gardens. As the only non-profit/non-government advocate group for historic preservation in Springfield, the Springfield Preservation Trust will continue to be the voice of preservation into the future.

Monthly Meeting

Monthly meetings of the Springfield Preservation Trust are held the 1st Wednesday of each month at 6PM Mason Wright Retirement Center, 74 Walnut Street. All Trust members are welcome.
